After Jacksonville, Florida quarterback Mac Jones flipped his commitment from Kentucky to Alabama on Tuesday night, the quarterback coaches/offensive coordinators from both schools took to Twitter.

It started with UK quarterbacks coach Darin Hinshaw’s tweet:

According to College Spun, Jones then tweeted that he respected Kentucky but the “old man is acting like a 12 year old.” That tweet has since been deleted.

Then Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin re-tweeted Hinshaw’s tweet.

Before that, Kiffin tweeted this:

This isn’t the first time, of course, that Kiffin has played Twitter troll.

Ultimately, Jones confirmed his commitment to the Tide.

Update: My friend Cecil Hurt of the Tuscaloosa News disagrees that Kiffin was “trolling” Hinshaw.
